Hold on, I’ll need a moment.
I’m still a puddle of goo after reading this book! MAKE ME, SIR is Master Marcus’s book and wow, where can I get me one of those?
Cherise Sinclair delivers yet another book that surpasses and goes beyond all my expectations! Never would have I imagined to read a story that uses the sensual allure of BDSM to coax an emotional recovery from a character quite like this.
Sinclair really goes above and beyond what most authors would do to accomplish not only steamy, earth-shattering sex scenes, but also delving deeper into the subconscious to mend old wounds that have lasted years and still haunt the heroine, Gabrielle.
As FBI social worker, Gabrielle volunteers to go into the Shadowlands as a decoy for a kidnapper who is abducting feisty subs and selling them for profit, Master Marcus has the task of teaching this difficult sub to surrender herself to him.
Master Marcus is unaware of Gabi’s assignment, so while she is truly submissive, she must play the part of a bratty sub to rouse Marcus’s anger on purpose, hoping to draw out the kidnapper and target her.
As this interesting – and sometimes hilarious – back and forth occurs between the hero and heroine, Cherise adds in the emotional element that makes a reader like me melt. How can I resist such a touching story?
I also thoroughly enjoyed the updates on the previous couples we’ve met from the others books. Reading about them is like seeing old friends. You can’t help but smile when you read about them.
There is some creative use of punishment in this book and I have to say that I enjoyed it thoroughly! The use of some items such as the ginger root, floating pool swan, tire swing and doggy tails were both hilarious and very, very creative! If that tease doesn’t get you to want to read this book, then I don’t know what else will.
The great thing about Sinclair’s books are that with each subsequent instalment, you know you are getting a story that will bring a blush to your cheeks, get that heartbeat racing and leave you satisfied and perhaps begging for me.
I highly recommend adding Sinclair’s books to your keeper shelf if you are a BDSM lover. Nothing gets better than a Shadowland Master!
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
